Great Bergen County Record Article on Apex Wrestling School’s Joe Oliva.
SUFFERN, N.Y. — Joe Oliva watched a few matches and made sure to “stay warm”, as Ridgewood’s 126-pound ace would close out the George Jockish Holiday Bergen County Wrestling Tournament on Dec. 30.
“I came into this tournament knowing I could take it if I wrestled my best,” he said afterward.
And Oliva, one of Ridgewood’s four medalists, wrestled well, claiming his first county title with a 7-3 decision over Saddle Brook junior Mike Andreano. With the win, Oliva, a junior, improved to 10-0 on the season.
